Dear colleagues,

A conference entitled *"What does human intra-cerebral recording tell us
about emotions”* will be held in Geneva on September 19-21, 2012.

The general purpose of the event is to discuss how intracranial
electro-encephalography (iEEG) can help neuroscientists, psychologists, and
neurologists to understand the neural basis of emotional processing in
humans. We seek to provide an overview of the iEEG studies that have
explored intra-cerebral electrophysiological activity during emotional
processing, in order to underline the value of this method for
understanding the neural circuits and timing of emotions in humans but also
to discuss challenges, limitations, and possible future developments. The
proposed workshop is divided into several sections focusing on human
intracerebral recordings in the context of auditory/speech and facial
emotion processing, decision making, subjective feeling emergence, and
clinical applications. Animal recordings and signal processing will be also
